PQQ stands for Pyrroloquinoline Quinone, a vitamin-like bioactive substance popular for its many beneficial effects on the body. PQQ widely exists in nature, including many animals, plants and microorganisms, such as fermented soybeans or natto, green peppers, kiwis, parsley, tea, papaya, spinach, celery, breast milk, etc.
The biological functions of PQQ are mainly concentrated in two aspects. First, it can support the growth and development of mitochondria and stimulate the rapid growth of human cells; second, it has good antioxidant properties, which can help remove free radicals and reduce cell damage. These two functions make it play a powerful role in brain health, cardiovascular health, metabolic health and other aspects. Because the body cannot synthesize PQQ itself, it can be supplemented through dietary supplements. These supplements are usually in powder form and are prepared through microbial fermentation.
PQQ can enhance the body's immune system and nervous system function. It is widely involved in intracellular redox processes, promoting energy metabolism and reducing oxidative damage to cells. It can also promote the proliferation and connection of neurons, help improve learning and memory abilities, and promote the recovery of neurological functions. May reduce stress, shorten recovery time, and promote the release of growth factors. In addition, PQQ can also promote angiogenesis, anti-aging and other biological effects. According to research, PQQ can also promote mitochondrial health, thereby delaying the aging process.
Since its discovery in 1979, PQQ has received great attention in nutrition and pharmacology. Since 2012, it has successively obtained GRAS certification from Health CaNADa (HC), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) and the European Commission (ESFA).
From the perspective of functional characteristics, PQQ has very outstanding advantages and has great application potential in the market. PQQ can support the growth and development of mitochondria, stimulate the rapid growth of human cells, and has strong antioxidant properties, which can help remove free radicals and reduce cell damage. It has a powerful effect in cardiovascular health, brain health, metabolic function health, etc. It can mainly help physical recovery and fight fatigue.
